The last Sunday in April is a fun day in photography and experimentation celebrating Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. (It’s new to me, too, but now it’s on the calendar!)
My first pinhole image was a “shot in the dark” completely guessed exposure of “a few minutes.” I used expired photo paper I got in a darkroom kit sale last summer. The paper was in a darkroom paper safe storage container but even I opened it in daylight at the garage sale to see what was in it. (For shame!) The darkroom kit had been stored in a barn or an old musty basement. All this to say – it’s not an exact science and this DIY fun can make a mess of your best intentions to calculate precise exposures!
Great way to just go shoot and not stress the details.

As one of my favorite months begins, so does the countdown to International Star Wars Day, May 4th. To kick things off, here’s a handful of my favorite details from Kelli & Phil’s very memorable wedding day.
Enjoy, and May the Fourth be with you! -eB
The bride’s R2D2 back tattoo
Handmade stationery bouquet, wedding rings with a braided handfasting ceremony cord.
And what’s a Star Wars day celebration without some small, hard to understand, colorful characters stealing a few scenes? Yoda & Wicket joined in as ring bearer and flower Ewok. Too cute, they were.
The ladies wore shoes adorned in decoupage of comics, superheroes, My Little Pony to go with Kelli’s pair of Star Trek Comicon.
Bonus – Kelli showing off her bridal R2D2 nail art
Kelli’s May the Fourth SciFi rich wedding day accessories featured personalized shoes with a phasers set to awesome. Decoupaged Comicon program clippings from the Phil’s proposal, The Starship Enterprise, Spock and Kirk, R2D2 blue toenail polish… the works.
